    ..Together, these findings suggest that older adults do not display valence-based effects on affective processing at relatively automatic stages...

    ..Therefore, the present results suggest that age-related changes in these processes implemented by the VMPFC contribute to older adults' "positivity effect."..

    Soc Neurosci 5:560-76. 2010
    ..These results suggest that age-related valence reversals in neural activity can exist even on tasks that require only relatively automatic processing of emotional information...

    Christina M Leclerc
    Department of Psychology, Boston College, Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts 13126, USA
    Dev Neuropsychol 36:519-38. 2011
    ..Older adults showed a positivity effect in memory for words, but not for pictures, suggesting that their positivity effect may stem from age-related changes in medial PFC engagement during encoding...

    Christina M Leclerc
    Department of Psychology, North Carolina State University, Raleigh, North Carolina 27695 7801, USA
    Exp Aging Res 33:95-120. 2007
    ..Results of this work indicate that age differences in the use of trait-diagnostic information were moderated by factors thought to affect the accessibility of relevant knowledge structures...

    Thomas M Hess
    Department of Psychology, North Carolina State University, Raleigh, NC 27695 7650, USA
    Psychol Aging 24:735-40. 2009
    ..In both studies, there were no age differences in the use of simple versus complex processing. Increasing age was, however, associated with increasing selectivity in cognitive resource engagement...

    Thomas M Hess
    Department of Psychology, North Carolina State University, Raleigh, NC 27695 7801, USA
    Psychol Aging 20:447-59. 2005
    ..The authors argue that these age differences reflect a type of expertise based in accumulated social experience, a conclusion bolstered by an additional finding that social activity moderated age differences in social judgments...
